Using a plastic bag to pick up your pets waste won’t help the environment either as some plastic bags can be recycled but need to be clean. A plastic bag can take up to 500 years to break down, discarded plastics are a big cause of pollution and are damaging our environment.
Beware of degradable or biodegradable
Degradable bags are commonly mistaken for biodegradable. But unlike biodegradable bags, they do not break down. A degradable bag is still petroleum-based plastic that will only break down into smaller pieces and take years to do this and will leave toxins in the soil.
If you read biodegradable on your bags it is important to note what they are made from, as most biodegradable bags in NZ are actually a plastic made the same way as a plastic bag using petrochemicals but have had an additive added to them when being processed which will help them to break down more quickly but only into very small pieces and they will leave toxins behind.
